Could be named after the lead singer of WASP, who knows???


User Banned (1 Month): Joke minimizing racism

Sounds fine considering most people would assume a child came up with that name, which is both lazy and stupid. But that’s just how kids are - lazy and stupid.


User Banned (3 Months): dismissing racism; prior severe ban for sexism

Seems goofy but not racist to me but then again...

Personally, I've never heard blackie used as a racial pejorative.


User Banned (permanent): dismissing racism, prior severe infraction

Gotta be honest, this wouldn't even register as racial to me if you didn't present it as such.

Would I name my dog Blackie? No, but naming your pet via the colour of their fur is pretty common. On a 1-10 scale this is like a 1 to me if that.


User Banned (1 Month): Dismissive commentary around racism

When I was younger my 10 year old sister named our white cat Whitey and black cat Blackie. I'm going to let her know she's racist now.


User Banned (3 Months): Trolling on racial topics

I feel like it’s racist to think it’s racist. It’s a strawberry floatin black dog. Would be like naming a yellow lab Goldie or sumthin

It's the last post where they descend from upon high to declare that it is Racist and there's no further discussion to be had before locking the thread that really gets me.

The inconsistent lengths of the bans are weird as well.

“My neighbours call their dog the N word” – 1 month ban

“My sister called our cat the same thing, guess she’s racist” – 3 month ban

“Doesn’t sound racist to me but this other guy confirmed it was used against him. I have never heard that word as a racial pejorative” – permanent ban

I don’t think those comments are too dissimilar, and the permanent ban one read to me as somebody genuinely ignorant who was just trying to understand.

What a bizarre forum that place is. :lol:

Its fantastic, the consistently of decision making makes VAR seem robust. I hope it never changes as i love to think there are people out there taking these decisions incredibly seriously.

User Banned (permanent): impersonating a mod

Having made that joke, I seem to remember somebody here did get banned for impersonating a mod once? Was it Peter Crisp in his mod days that was furious when somebody copied his avatar?

Edit:

Found it

Falsey’s last ban was 31 July 2014 for two weeks.

What happened between 31 July and 13 August 2014 to so utterly change him?

Hmmm.

Events: The Glasgow Commonwealth Games were just finishing

Deaths: The most famous deaths in that timeframe were Lauren Bacall and Robin Williams

The answer seems obvious. With no GRcade to entertain him and inspired by the Commonwealth Games, Falsey decided to get fit. The best way of getting fit? Wanking over old Hollywood movie starlets. This had a deep impact on Falsey when he was stroking his way through Dark Passage only to receive an alert that she had died. Did he kill her? Was his irresponsible self-pleasure killing the greats of the Hollywood golden era?

He couldn’t risk killing anymore great actors. Whipping out his manhood he decided that Princess Jasmine was a safe fantasy, you can’t kill a cartoon right? Just as he hit the vinegar stroke though, the Genie shouted “I’m FREE, I’m FREE!!” and a news alert popped up regarding Robin Williams sad death.

From that day on, Falsey resolved to never again be parted from GRcade. The risk to the rich and famous was just too great.

I dont remember what happened sadly

I think it was just because the permaban was overturned due to forum outcry at the loss of its preeminent figure of dudeitude the mods figured it wasnt worth the risk to keep my radical energy in check

Good point, I hadn't really thought about it in that way. Still seems a bit odd that it is so popular given how gooseberry fool it appears to be!

EDIT: but thinking about it I guess the world is full of gooseberry fool things that are popular. Just look at our current government. :dread:

I mostly follow it for game news, which it can be pretty good for. I only venture into their non-game chat section to laugh at some of the freaks that post there.
